Hello,
I tried to get the bars number since a specific date with the below code. But the problem is that the outcome of the bars number keeps same if I input e.g.:20150101or 20150510. It seems the calculation only start from the first bar of a certain year no matter what any other date is specified. Coule you help to check what's the matter with it?
Thanks

Sorry, that's a mistake in the QuickRef

Use String format = "yyyyMMdd";
Not String format = "yyyymmdd";

Also available: WealthScript function DateTimeToBar (see QuickRef)
